Get back the spring in your step with orthotics!

Do you spend time each day figuring out how to make your life simpler and easier? When it comes to your feet, are you thinking about them at all? Your feet are the foundation of your body and truly need special care and attention. Whether you are suffering with foot pain yet or not, a pair of custom orthoticscan make your life a little easier and less painful.

Orthotics are simply shoe inserts used for a variety of reasons. Some of the main reasons Dr. Phil Pinsker, foot specialist in Washington, PA, provides his patients orthotics are:

  •          Correct an abnormal gait
  •          Provide support
  •          Relieve pressure
  •          Prevent a foot deformity or slow down its progression
  •          Provide better positioning for the foot
  •          Improve the function of the foot

A custom orthotic will be an insert made from the specific mold of your foot, tailored for your foot’s needs. There are many benefits for wearing orthotics and they can truly make a difference in how efficiently your whole body moves. A misaligned foot structure can throw off the balance in your entire body. Your knees, hips, and lower back can all endure added stress when your feet are not balanced the way they need to be.

Orthotics can reduce any pain you may already have, prevent problems from developing and reduce your chance of injury. Whether you are a sports enthusiast, busy mom, a senior, or have a job that has you on your feet all day, orthoticsmay be the ticket to keeping you on your feet.
